I managed to fit some crafting in today. I made a few cards, some of which I can't yet share, but I have a nice sunny one for you this evening.
I masked off a vertical panel and blended three Distress Inks to create an ombre effect. I then laid a stencil over the panel, spritzed with water and then blotted with a paper towel to remove the colour and produce the flowery pattern, the ghosting technique. I removed the masks and left it to dry for a short time before stamping the sentiment.
